'Historic' junior doctor agreement will pave way for seven-day NHS, says Hunt

Comment

Nick Triggle's analysis on BBC Health News was interesting : ''The fact that something has been agreed is a major breakthrough, but this dispute is still a long way from being over. The problem the BMA faces is that emotions are running so high. The profession has been incredibly united throughout. Some 98% voted in favour of taking strike action last autumn and whenever union leaders have taken soundings since, the overwhelming sense has been that doctors have wanted to fight on. If this hadn't been the case the leadership would probably have agreed a deal long before now.''
